Department Head Manager (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – October 4, 2018
Queens Hospital was good to work in. You interacted with patients in their concerns and needs. It is a teaching hospital. Overtime, management changed hands and the hospital lost employees due to new management.
Resident Coordinator for Surgery Department (Former Employee) – Elmhurst, NY – September 28, 2018
Fast pace and very busy. I've learned a lot from applying my knowledge on Excel for reporting the updated credentials on a daily basis and on Word for reporting the monthly Performance Improvement meeting minutes.
Admission Clerk (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 10, 2018
A typical day at Harlem Hospital , began with reviewing the registering patients. I would also have to assign patients beds. I would visit the hospital floors to access bed availability prior the sending the patients up to the designated floor. I also had to coordinate high level meetings, with other city hospitals include within Health and Hospital Corporations. The workplace culture is very diversified. Is included all walks of life. The most difficult aspect of my job would be to coordinate meetings with other facilities. This can be very challenging. I truly enjoy working in the medical field. I like being able to provide services to the public. I am a people person, therefore working in the hospital is rewarding for me.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 30, 2018
I really enjoy waking up in the morning to go to work it has a dynamic history, I love the work I do and I can look forward to in-service training because I can reinforce what I've learned though out my years working in the health field.

great place to learn new things and grow as an IT professional .. I've been privileged to learn all facets of IT responsibilities in HHC. And was able to transition into an enterprise environment. I feel very prepared for any area I pursue in IT due to my time here at HHC.
Program Director (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 28, 2018
Typical day at work included attending meetings, reports, data entry, financial management, staff training and support, customer service/patients needs. I learned to be open minded and accept people of all culture regardless of what my own morals, ethics and short coming were. Workplace culture was quite competitive at times. Hardest part of the day was getting the patients to see the Physician in a reasonable time Most enjoyable time of the day was knowing that the patients were leaving the hospital with their needs met and that they were satisfied.

Ok place to work unless your department is understaffed
PR (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 21, 2018
Employees can be expected to work outside of normal work hours in order to compensate for being understaffed but having an increased workload. While the workload is not necessarily the problem, it CAN be due to poor management, which then causes a trickledown effect. Subordinates become stressed because of the workload and cannot perform their job functions properly or efficiently.
Co-workers, health insurance, benefits, pension/retirement
Department is understaffed, receive no compensation for increased workload, management states "there is no justification for a pay increase."
Stressful, but with the right interdisciplinary team, can be a great place.
Psychiatric Social Worker Behavioral Health Center (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 18, 2018
Time management within my role is kind of non-existent. With the pressure to deal with high-risk cases, plan for strong aftercare plans, collaborate with people inside and out, it is a lot for a BH social worker. There are times when the SW dept. does not agree with the decisions of the rest of the team, mainly the doctors, so there is usually a bit of back and forth about the best plans, but with the right team that respects the SW clinical assessment and expertise, things can work well.
Family Court Mental Health Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 15, 2018
I really loved working with NYCHH. This was my first job that I had in the city so it was exciting. I was an intern and got to meet other interns in the same age range as me. It was a very valuable experience.
Great people to work with, hard culture to change.
Organizational Development Specialist (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 13, 2018
My department was compiled of a bunch of great people. The main issue working here is the lack of collaboration outside your own department. Very difficult to break the old culture of "we'll do it ourselves" or "we don't need your help, you don't know my department".
Director, Medical & Professional Staff Services (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 9, 2018
A typical work day: standard day to day activities, several meetings. I enjoyed working with the physicians and residents. I enjoyed supporting them in their day to day functions as their days get overwhelming at times.
What I enjoyed most - coordinating events for the physicians (i.e, doctors day, special luncheons, etc). They really deserve the break!
Be available to all team members. Working on projects.
The dedication of the physicians to their patients
